t’s a great time to be Sharman Joshi. The actor, who is known for his comic timing and supporting work in major films like 3 Idiots, has received acclaim for his work in Ekta Kapoor’s Baarish, a romantic drama web series which is available to stream on Zee5/AltBalaji. The second season of the show premiered on May 6, 2020, and rumour has it that Sharman has already signed a project with another streaming giant.
Titled ‘Penthouse,’ the show is directed by master thriller director duo Abbas-Mustan and is slated to be a psychological thriller as well. According to sources on the web, Sharman is playing the lead role and was supposed to start shooting in early April. However, the shoot has been indefinitely postponed to the coronavirus pandemic.
This is the first time Abbas-Mustan, whose last project was the 2017 movie Machine, will be working on something for an OTT platform. Meanwhile, Sharman has been sharing reviews for his work on Baarish on his Instagram page. Let’s see when Penthouse goes on floors.
